to the f.b.i. websites. this is all about guns. people say more guns, reason for violent crime is guns. look at the number. from the f.b.i. website, between 1992-2011, 20 years of data, murders and violent crimes have gone down by 49% each. 15 years of those, 1994, 192 million fire arms and 2,009,310,000,000 fire arms. doubling the fire arms. number of firearms went up and violent crime and murders went down. you have can't say guns cause violent crime. >> bob: so the it's more guns, less crime, not good police work? >> dana: or the opposite is not true. mine is also important. chief of staff jac jack lew was nominated as the secretary of treasury. a let of question about his signature. this is a grown man. this is his signature, doesn't resemble anything. president obama had a great joke about it today. bob and i were talking today, i realize bob was eating his lunch where the signature came from. checkbe this out. this is what bob eats for lunch. >> kimberly: that is why we have healthy snacks. okay. now we have a cute video here. if bill maher pays up. >> we have a new rule that sup
briefing along with the attorney-general and the director of the fbi. just like the analysts and special agents who are working these issues, we aim to stay on top of the threat picture and to help devise tactics and strategies and tools for getting ahead of it. today its standard -- it is standard procedure for agents conducting counterterrorism investigations to consult throughout the process with attorneys and prosecutors in the national security division. that is to ensure that all potential avenues for destruction of a threat, intelligence gathering, investigation and prosecution are all preserved. if you asked me to break down how much intelligence versus how much law enforcement work we do, i would be hard pressed to give you an answer. we are almost always pursuing multiple tracks at the same time. we no longer have to across organizational lines to bring tools and talent to bear against a particular threat or problem. for instance, our office lawyers in the office of intelligence work day in and day out with the intelligence community to secure authorities under the surveillance
in december, for several hours it is reported by the fbi. we have no word what came out of that. his lawyer all along denied involvement. said his client was only in libya on a construction job. so overnight he was conditionally released by authorities in tunisia. they say for lack of evidence. he is still suspected however, of possible involvement in a terror organization, bill. bill: where does that leave the u.s. now on this investigation? anywhere? >> reporter: well, by all accounts, bill, it really does not look too much advanced since we were last in benghazi in october. one report says it is totally stalled. another report says the probe has not resulted in a single person being charged. at that time time we were talking a few dozen people being questioned but apparently what we saw in benghazi is still the situation there now. security is a problem. militias are strong. attacks on the security forces supposed to be investigating this attack on the consulate seems to be more the norm. there was one arrest, one person being held in relation to a possible terror group in key owe, egypt
in the attack. he's been held since that time but not questioned by either the libyans or the f.b.i. the agents didn't allow for this. today surprisingly his lawyer appeared befre a judge and said there wasnsufficie evince to hold h ande was subsequently released even though members of congress and others have said they believe he was involved in the attack. so it's really raised questions not only about his case but where the investigation broadly stands nearly four months after the attack libyan authorities say that they have had a problem arresting people that while they have suspects they have -- the authorities are afraid to arrest people because of their ties to the militias and so this case really raes broader qutio about the stat of the investigation into the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. >> i want to get to those broader questions but a logistical one first hichlt is it that a tunisian ends up being a suspect and he's being held in tunis for an attack that allegedly occurred in libya. >> according to the investigators we've spoken to there were upward
resistance he agreed to an fbi interrogation. no comment from the fbi on the substance of that. his lawyers say he was in libya at the time but he was on a construction job. sources say while he is freed he has to remain in the tunisian capital, tunis, he is still charged with suspected involvement after terror organization, joon. jon: he is the only suspect arrested where does that leave the u.s. in this >> reporter: the fbi confirmed to me they have an ongoing investigation and they have agents on the ground in lib a they can't say much more than that. by all accounts this probe is not much more advanced since we were in benghazi in october. one report says it is totally stalled. another says no one has been charged and that all suspects remain on the loose. the problem it appears very little cooperation on the ground in libya. we saw it in benghazi. security remains a big issue. militias are still strong. they are doing attacking of people that should be doing the investigating. so you see the problems. one suspect was questioned in december in cairo with possible links, both to the atta
of a former fbi agent who was kidnapped in iran has released a new series of images of her husband. robert levinston is shown draped in chains in what appears to be a mock prison uniform. he holds a sign which reads, help me. he was kidnapped while on a business trip to iran back in 2007. the family says the u.s., though, is not putting enough pressure on iran to deal with the case. >>> record temperatures in southern australia have cooled slightly this morning, dropping below 100 degrees for the first time in days. that small consolation to firefighters battling to put out fires that have consumed more than 300,000 acres in the last day alone. details from the bbc's nick bryant. >> reporter: the fires are being fanned by ferocious winds and some of the highest temperatures the state has ever witnessed. four large regions are being placed at a highest state of alert, catastrophic. it means the fires are uncontrollable and fast moving. at ground level, we saw for ourselves how terrifying the fire fronts can be. this is one of the state's main roads, the prince's highway. too dangerous for t
also created the department of home and security, and the national security elements of the fbi were merged into its national security branch. these efforts were born of the need to institutionalize and facilitate information sharing and to bridge a gap that existed between our intelligence and law-enforcement capabilities. on the heels of all of this change, it also became evident that and other service was in high demand, it is what the wmd commission called "thoughtful and constructive legal guidance." following recommendations from that commission and others, the national security division was created within the department of justice to make sure we have a unity of purpose among the intelligence community and law enforcement and prosecutors. functions division's reflect the removal of legal and cultural barriers. nsd has brought them under one roof and is in closer alignment with those of the fbi and the rest of the national security community. nsd's lawyers worked as terrorism prosecutors alongside their colleagues in the u.s. attorney offices around the country and they work as
debate, the fbi says background checks for firearms has soared some 39% in one month's time and that they hit a record high in the the month of december. while the government does not track how many guns are actually sold there are anecdotal reports from gun store owners and manufacturers that firearms are flying off the shelves. major manufacturer suggests that that trend is being reflected in their world as well and the background checks of course support that notion. and now to a murder mystery surrounding the death of a lottery winner. chicago resident kahn hit the jackpot last summer winning a million dollars on a scratch-off tickets. friends and family say he was ecstatic and 24 hours after state officials issued him a check for the winnings, police say kahn suddenly died a now, after initially they said it was of natural causes, they say in fact he was the victim of cyanide poisoning. trace gallagher has more, trace? >> reporter: and this one, megyn, caught the medical examiner off guard. when he bought that lottery ticket he just returned from a hajj pilgrimage, exce
for transfer, yet the cia and the department of justice and the fbi and the department of defense have left that and concluded that we're not going to prosecutor them, we don't have evidence they committed an offense and we don't believe they present a significant risk, and we don't want to keep them. but they have been sitting here year after year are after year at guantanamo because of their citizenship, primarily yemeni, because we don't trust the yemeni government to be responsibility with the detainees, which is interesting because the had the cop sent of theem meni government to fly the drones. so it seems we're a bit hypocritical in our view of the yemen. and i think guantanamo remains a stain on our reputation. recently congress passed a bill that prohibits granting visas to members of the russian government accused of human rights violations, and president obama signed it. in retaliation the russian government passed a bill that prevents americans from adopting russian children. and president president putin be signing it, had a news conference and was quite angry about the bill ou
or paying our soldiers or paying the fbi. these are choices that now becoming a little bit more real and i don't think there's anybody in the republicans -- well, there are a few but most people know this would be nuts. >> this is why congress is less popular now than getting simultaneous root canals ands colonoscopies and listening to nickelback. >> stephanie: not talking about you. >> i certainly hope not. >> stephanie: how does this play out? the exact same way? will it be 11th hour again? >> well, that wouldn't surprise me a bit. but the 11th hour is kind of -- not as precise as what it was with december 31st and january 1st. it is an estimate that it is february 15th. we won't know exactly. at some point if they get the printing press warmed up for the platinum coin -- >> stephanie: which, by the way, you should be on. absolutely. >> that would be one for the record books. that would be nice. i really don't think they can wait that long. i think they have to start -- we really should be negotiating now. of course, we're not in session this week because we worked so hard last week and
of auditors and criminal investigators. more than the fbi. it's not just our size, mandate, or unique authority that is important. it is how we and how i view our mission and how our agency sees that mission. when i joined sigar, i made it clear on the first day that you should view this as a mission and not as a job. if you see this as a job, as a place to retire in place, you should leave, because i only wanted people with fire in the belly, because we have a limited amount of time to do good in the construction in afghanistan. i have used that fire in the belly speech so much that my chief of staff has coined a new term called "fitb." it has worked. i am proud of my 200 agents, auditors, and investigators, because they all have that fire in the belly. bacon work elsewhere. some of them are working in the worst conditions. they're working in conditions as bad as our military is in gh
the fiscal and political price. so i think in a weird way it would actually be great if we had fbi agents in santa clara breaking down the doors of gravely-ill pot smokers. that'll tell people more about the federal government than 15 papers from the cato institute. [laughter] one last point about this and then i'll end. you see the force of the anti-commandeering rule in something that jonathan mentioned at the outset, and that is the affordable care act. this seems far removed, but it really isn't. if you look at the affordable care act, there's, by the way, same preoccupation among conservatives and libertarians with thebredth of the federal government's power. how far does the commerce power go. but the man tate that was at issue -- mandate that was at issue in that case, in the nfib case, that's not the engine that drives the affordable care act. the engine that drives that act is the exchanges, the state exchanges, which weren't even at issue in that case but will be, i i hope. here's the way this works. initially, the administration and congress wanted to congressman dealer states
